A Memory of Jaywick.
Jaywick has always been a very special place for me and most of my happiest childhood memories are from when my sister, myself, my parents and grandparents and our dog Sally would have our annual holiday there in the first week in June. We stayed in a lovely bungalow in Lake Way called 'Many Happy Returns' which we always called our Little Mauve House due to its colour. :)
One vague memory has suddenly come to me and I really don't know how accurate it is and wondered if anyone can help me with this. We were there in 1977 for the Silver Jubilee (I would have been about 7) and I have this memory of some kind of celebration or mini street party out on the road at Lake Way. I don't know if it was just my family but I seem to remember other children being there. Sadly most people who I could've asked for clarification are not longer with us so as a very long shot I thought I'd ask here. Does this ring any bells with anyone?
Nearly 40 years on I'm still drawn to Jaywick and each time I go I remember more and more wonderful memories. Sadly we stopped going when I was 10 after my granddad died but it was such a positive and happy part of my life that I will always love it.
